    The Scattering of the Gospel

    February 17, 2013  — 

    Stephen’s death causes three things to happen with regards to the growing church in Jerusalem. First, they experience their first encounter with persecution. Secondly, the church is scattered across Judea and Samaria which means that the Gospel is preached to people in countries surrounding Jerusalem for the first time.

    Scripture: Acts 8:1-8
